News:Tyler Seguin notched his first goal of the playoffs and picked up an assist in Thursday's overtime loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: It took 11 games for Tyler Seguin to hit the back of the net, but it's not like he wasn't getting his chances. His 45 shots on goal are second among postseason skaters to date. With Jaromir Jagr now skating with Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron, Seguin has being working with Rich Peverley and Chris Kelly on the Bruins' speedy third line.
News:Tyler Seguin notched an assist on the game-winning tally in Monday's 5-4 Game 7 overtime win over the Leafs.
Analysis: The point was the first of the postseason for Tyler Seguin, who did manage to record 29 shots in the seven-game first-round series against the Leafs. The team will be looking for Seguin, as well as linemates Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron, to pick things up in the second round of the playoffs after being thoroughly outplayed by the David Krejci/Milan Lucic/Nathan Horton trio in Round 1.
News:Tyler Seguin scored his 14th goal of the year Thursday, but it was Boston's only goal in a 2-1 loss to the Islanders.
Analysis: Despite the loss, that's goals in consecutive games for Tyler Seguin, a positive sign after he'd picked up just a single point in the prior six contests. He's had trouble building on last year's 29-goal, 67-point breakout, largely due to a lack of consistency on the offensive end as well as Boston's depth at forward.
News:Tyler Seguin skated on the Bruins' third line along with Daniel Paille, Chris Kelly, and Jay Pandolfo at practice Sunday, Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: With injuries to Patrice Bergeron and Chris Kelly, along with the addition of Jaromir Jagr to the mix, the Bruins continue to shuffle things up in terms of line combos. When he is on, Tyler Seguin is an electric skater with a dangerous shot, so we doubt that his stint on the third line will be a long one, especially with Kelly thought to be nearing a return.
News:Tyler Seguin will center a line with Brad Marchand and Jaromir Jagr on Thursday against the Devils, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis:Tyler Seguin, who played center for his entire career before entering the NHL, will be filling in for Patrice Bergeron, who is out indefinitely due to a concussion. The move doesn't affect Seguin's fantasy upside a whole lot -- he still has plenty -- but the shift to center could give him added position eligibility in some leagues if it sticks.
News:Tyler Seguin fired 12 shots on goal Tuesday, but got just one past the Sens' Robin Lehner in a 3-2 win.
Analysis: Things have been rough lately for Tyler Seguin, who'd been scoreless in six of his previous seven games. He compensated Tuesday with the career-high shot total, a somewhat surprising effort from a guy who'd never broken double digits in a game before.
News:Tyler Seguin picked up a goal and two assists in a losing effort Wednesday.
Analysis: The Bruins had a two-goal lead in the third period, but couldn't hold off the Habs in the closing seconds of regulation and eventually missed out on the extra point by losing in the shootout. Tyler Seguin hasn't taken the leap forward that some expected after his 67-point campaign a year ago, but he's carrying a plus-22 rating along with 11 goals and 13 assists through 32 games this season.
News:Tyler Seguin scored his eighth goal of the season in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Flyers.
Analysis: The electric Tyler Seguin has been on a roll late, with five goals and two assists over his last five games, to bring the speedy winger's season total to 19 points in 22 contests to go along with a spiffy plus-16 rating.
News:Tyler Seguin scored twice -- once into an empty net -- and added an assist in Thursday's win over the Leafs.
Analysis: After a quiet start to the season, Tyler Seguin's found his touch over the last few weeks, totaling 12 points in his last nine games.
News:Tyler Seguin picked up two assists (one on an empty-netter) in Tuesday's win over the Isles.
Analysis: That's five straight games with a point for Tyler Seguin, who had previously recorded a mere six points in 12 games. The buy-low window has closed.
News:Tyler Seguin notched an assist in Thursday's win over the Lightning.
Analysis:Tyler Seguin, who has scored a point in each of his last three games, has recorded nine points in 14 games to date, a modest figure given his electric skill-set, but he does lead the Bruins with a plus-10 mark and he's but a hot streak away from approaching the point-per-game pace he is capable of maintaining.
News:Tyler Seguin was on the ice Tuesday morning after getting a maintenance day Monday.
Analysis: It's worth noting that Tyler Seguin appeared to be injured on a hit from Buffalo's Patrick Kaleta on Sunday night, but he did go on to finish that game, and there's nothing to suggest that Seguin's availability for Tuesday's game against the Rangers is in any peril.
News:Tyler Seguin was switched to a line with Milan Lucic and David Krejci prior to the third period of Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Canadiens, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: The move paid off as the line clicked for a pair of third period goals, so it's an intruiging combo that may stick in the short-term, especially if the day-to-day Brad Marchand misses any more action.
News:Tyler Seguin notched a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 2-1 win over Montreal.
Analysis: Wednesday's effort was the second two-point outing of the season for the dynamic third-year winger, who now has six points over the Bruins' first nine games.
News:Tyler Seguin scored on a shootout attempt Tuesday night, but had to re-do his shot because a fan had thrown an "unidentified food object" on the ice, Comcast SportsNet New England reports. The object slid behind goalie Johan Hedberg just before Seguin scored top-right corner.
Analysis: Under league rules, the shooter must re-do his attempt. Tyler Seguin also scored on the re-do.
News:Tyler Seguin had an assist and an empty-net goal Monday night in Boston's 5-3 win over Carolina. Coming into Monday night's game, Seguin had just one assist in four games.
Analysis: Boston head coach Claude Julien feels Tyler Seguin's time on the bigger ice surfaces in Switzerland during the lockout is impacting the young forward's production and in time he'll adjust, though that seems like a reach.
News:Tyler Seguin has just one assist this season through the Bruins' first three games.
Analysis:Tyler Seguin is still seeing a large amount of ice time but hasn't quite gotten on track so far this season. Don't expect the young 20-year-old to remain off the score sheet much longer.
Bruins' Seguin Returns From Successful Stint in Europe
News:Tyler Seguin recorded 25 goals and 15 assists in 29 games while playing for Biel of the Swiss National League A during the NHL lockout, the Boston Herald reports. "Make no doubt about it, it's a different league over there,"teammate Andrew Ference noted. "But if you see the kind of goals he was scoring and the way he was scoring them he was setting himself up in good position he was dynamic. He wasn't scoring goals because of weaker competition. He was sniping."
Analysis: In any case, Tyler Seguin, who underwent offseason hand surgery, is healthy and good to go for the upcoming NHL season, noting that he is skating better than he has "in a really long time." Coming off a 29-goal, 67-point 2011-12, the electric Seguin appears poised to step it up a notch in his third season in the NHL, with the report encouragingly adding that Seguin could be in line for more responsibility on the Bruins' power-play unit this year.
News:Tyler Seguin says he's "one hundred percent healthy" after a sketchy report about a hip injury popped up last weekend, reports CSNNE.com. "I have no idea where that [report] came from," said Seguin to CSNNE.com. "I told them I was leaving with no injury reason."
Analysis: His words were clearly backed up by his play for Canada in the Spengler Cup -- he wasn't inhibited in any way and was one of the tourney's stars. There was a report out of a Boston media outlet last year that Tyler Seguin had a genetic predisposition to hip issues later in his career, but that didn't stop the Bruins from inking him to a six-year extension. He should be good to go for the coming NHL season.
News:Tyler Seguin will return to North America after the Spengler Cup is over, reports CSNNE.com.
Analysis: He had been toiling for HC Biel where he had 25 goals and 40 points in just 29 games and was probably the most dominant NHLer who played in Europe this season. He's currently skating for Team Canada in the Spengler Cup.
News:Tyler Seguin will play with EHC Biel of Switzerland during the NHL lockout, EHCB.ch reports.
Analysis:Tyler Seguin's deal with EHC Biel will not prevent him from rejoining the Bruins when the lockout comes to an end. The 20-year-old totaled 29 goals and 38 assists in his second NHL season.
News: The Bruins have signed Tyler Seguin (hand) to a six-year contract extension for an average $5.75 million per season, Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: The speedy Tyler Seguin, who was selected by the Bruins with the second pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, has already developed into an eletrric presence up front for the team, having notched a 29-38-67 line over 81 games this past season. His new deal will keep him on board through the 2018-19 NHL season, as Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli continues to be proactive about keeping the team's core players together.
News:Tyler Seguin (hand) has returned to the ice for the first time since having surgery to repair a dislocated tendon on his middle finer, the Boston Herald reports.
Analysis: "In the end, I think the hand might get stronger by me doing (the rehab). It's not 100 percent right now, but it's getting there," said Tyler Seguin. "I was very, very, very nervous going to skate the other night for the first time, just because I didn't know what to expect from my hand, but it didn't hurt too much at all. It was a little sore once I got off the ice, but I did pretty much everything. . . . My shot wasn't 100 percent, but it was probably 90 percent, 85 percent. I hadn't shot a puck in a while so maybe that's the reason or that I'm still getting the power in my hand back since the surgery." Seguin continues to be on the right track towards starting the 2012 season healthy.
News:Tyler Seguin (hand) is already out of a cast for a dislocated tendon in his middle finger after undergoing surgery in early May, Comcast SportsNet New England reports.
Analysis:Tyler Seguin said he faces a 10-week recovery process, but should be at full strength by the beginning of Bruins training camp. He won't be able to fully train until the hand has completely recovered in July.
News:Tyler Seguin, who suffered what was described as a detached tendon in his left hand on March 15, will most likely require surgery to repair the issue, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: After suffering the injury, team doctors told Tyler Seguin that he couldn't do further damage to his hand by playing, so he continued to do, often at a high level. The second-year forward ended up leading the Bruins in both goals (29) and points (67) in 81 games, while recording a plus-34 rating. Assuming a full recovery from his hand issue, heading into the 2012-13 season, the future is bright (with an arrow pointing up with regards to his fantasy prospects) for the electric Seguin, who possesses game-changing speed and a laser shot.
News:Tyler Seguin potted two goals in Saturday's 4-3 shootout win over the Sabres.
Analysis: The former second overall pick finishes his sophomore season with 67 points in 81 games and a staggering plus-32 rating. Those who own Tyler Seguin in keeper leagues are salivating, as his career is just beginning to take flight.
News:Tyler Seguin scored a goal and had two assists in a 6-3 win over the Islanders on Saturday.
Analysis: All of Tyler Seguin's stats came in a four-goal third period for the Bruins. He has four points in his last three games. His 36 goals on the season are good for 36th in the league.
News:Tyler Seguin scored two goals in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Leafs.
Analysis:Tyler Seguin, who now has four goals over his last four games, has been electric of late, using his tremendous speed to full advantage, and following Tuesday's game, he now sports a league-high plus-35 rating.
News:Tyler Seguin picked up a goal and an assist in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over New Jersey.
Analysis:Tyler Seguin had gone 10 games without a goal, but playing on a line with Milan Lucic, centered by David Krejci, Seguin was electric Thursday. Given the spark the trio displayed, look for the combo to stick, with a boost in production from Seguin quite well likely the result.
News:Tyler Seguin scored for the second-consecutive game, grabbing a goal in Tuesday's loss to Washington.
Analysis: The rising star had three pointless efforts prior to goals in the last two games and remains one of the league's elite young talents, boasting a league-best plus-34 on the season.
News:Tyler Seguin got the scoring started at just 1:14 into the first period Thursday against Calgary, then added two assists en route to a 9-0 win.
Analysis:Tyler Seguin's sophomore explosion continues, as he's now back to a point-per-game pace. The most amazing thing about the not-quite-20-year-old this year is his consistency -- he hasn't gone more than two games in a row without a point, and he's currently in the midst of a stretch in which he's picked up a point in six of seven games.
Bruins' Seguin Tallies Five Points In Last Three Games
News:Tyler Seguin has notched five points in his last three games while posting a plus-5 rating.
Analysis:Tyler Seguin has been red-hot as of late as the Bruins look to improve on a six-game win streak. With a league-high plus-26 in 32 games, owners should not think twice about starting the Bruins' leading points scorer.
News:Tyler Seguin tallied a goal and an assist in Saturday's victory over the Flyers.
Analysis:Tyler Seguin had totaled just one point in four games since being scratched from a game for disciplinary reasons, but he got back on track Saturday with his first multi-point effort since Nov. 23. Seguin now has 28 points (14G, 14A) in 30 games this season.
News:Tyler Seguin picked up an assist in Saturday's win over the Blue Jackets.
Analysis:Tyler Seguin recorded three shots for the second game in a row, but more importantly he and the team have seemingly put his one-game scratch (for missing a team meeting) in the rear-view mirror.
News:Tyler Seguin, who was a late scratch for Tuesday's game against the Jets for missing a team breakfast, was out with his usual linemates (Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand) for Thursday's morning skate, the Bruins' official site reports.
Analysis: As the holiday season approaches, Tyler Seguin can expect plenty of alarm clock-themed gag gifts, but his one-game benching should (literally) serve as something of a wake-up call for the talented young forward. He'll be back in the Boston lineup Thursday against Florida, presumably with his game face on and a little extra giddy-up in his step.
News:Tyler Seguin was scratched from Tuesday's game against the Jets for missing a team meeting, the Bruins' official site reports.
Analysis: This one comes out of the blue, but we'd expect that the scratch might serve as a bit of a wakeup call for young Tyler Seguin, who has gotten off to a strong start, stat-wise.
News:Tyler Seguin scored for the first time in four games, notching a goal in Monday's win over Pittsburgh, his 12th of the season.
Analysis:Tyler Seguin has been one of the league's most consistent players this season, among the leaders in points as well as plus-minus. Expect the production to continue as Boston has turned the second-overall pick of 2010 loose on the league. He has 12 goals in 24 games after posting 11 in 74 contests as a rookie last season.
News:Tyler Seguin registered an assist and finished in Wednesday's 6-3 win over Toronto, ending a two-game points drought.
Analysis: The comparisons between Toronto's Phi Kessel and Tyler Seguin were flowing freely on both the Leafs and Bruins broadcasts during the game, as Seguin was selected with the Leafs' No. 2 overall pick acquired by Boston in the Kessel trade. For those looking at statistics, both players had an assist, but Kessel was a minus-3 to Seguin's even rating. Seguin experienced a small slump, but he has not stayed off the scoresheet too often as he establishes himself as one of the league's top young players. His plus-19 remains tops among NHL forwards.
News:Tyler Seguin picked up a goal and an assist in Wednesday night's 4-3 shootout win over the Sabres.
Analysis:Tyler Seguin had been in a mini slump with just one point over his last four games heading into Wednesday. With 23 points on the season, Seguin is having the breakout season owners had hoped for all along.
News:Tyler Seguin's point streak now stands at six games after a two-goal, one-assist performance on Saturday night. His goal streak stands at four games.
Analysis: He's been everything that's been advertised and then some. His 11 goals and 20 points are top-10 in the entire league ... and he's still a teenager. There's no doubt what you need to do.
News:Tyler Seguin scored a goal and added an assist in Thursday's win over the Oilers, stretching his points streak to five games.
Analysis: It's no cheap streak, either, as he's got six goals and two assists in those five games. After a decent, but uninspiring rookie year, Tyler Seguin has rediscovered the form that made him the second overall pick in 2010, rapidly developing into one of the finest young players in the league.
News:Tyler Seguin potted his first career hat trick in Saturday's shellacking of the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: The final score was 7-0. He now has seven goals and seven assists to lead the Bruins this season. And he's been remarkably consistent, particularly for a 19-year-old -- he has points in nine of the B's 12 games. This kid is going to be a star.
News:Tyler Seguin scored a sniper's goal Saturday in a loss to the Canadiens.
Analysis: It came at 19:05 of the third and drew the B's to within one goal of a tied match. They ultimately lost 4-2. He continues to lead the Bruins in scoring with 10 points in 10 games. Not bad for a 19-year-old.
News:Tyler Seguin has denied a report that he was born with a congenital hip condition, the Boston Globe reports. "I was not born with any symptoms or anything like that," Seguin said Saturday. "I'm 100-percent healthy. So whatever was said is false."
Analysis: The ESPN report asserted that Tyler Seguin was born with a congenital hip condition that could make him more prone to future injury, but Seguin's flat denial of the issue, plus his strong start (a team-high nine points in nine games) suggests that while this nugget is something to file away, at the very least, it does not impact the dynamic forward's short-term value.
News:Tyler Seguin (ankle) played nearly 18 minutes in Thursday's loss to the Canadiens.
Analysis:Tyler Seguin took a stick to the ankle in the previous game, but with five days off between contests, he was not forced to miss any action. Consider Seguin healthy going forward.
News:Tyler Seguin, who scored his third goal of the season early in the third period, left Saturday's game in the final three minutes after taking a nasty slash on the ankle, reports the Associated Press. He did not return.
Analysis: "He'll probably have a bad bruise," said coach Claude Julien after the game. We hope that's all it is -- he's been gold so far this year.
News:Tyler Seguin scored a goal and added two assists in Thursday's win over the Leafs.
Analysis: He's already racked up eight points in seven games so far this year, showing the high-end skill that made him last year's No. 2 draft pick. Those in yearly leagues should be on notice, as he appears to have really arrived now.
Bruins' Seguin Gets First Goal Of Season Wednesday
News:Tyler Seguin scored Boston's first goal of the game Wednesday night in a 3-2 loss to Carolina.
Analysis: He played just over 20 minutes on the first line and looked great, finishing with four shots on net and a plus-1 rating. Tyler Seguin will be given every opportunity to succeed on the first line due to David Krejci's core injury. Seguin now has a goal and three assists through four games.
News:Tyler Seguin will play with the first line Wednesday night, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: With David Krejci out with a core injury, this is an opportunity for Tyler Seguin to prove he deserves a more prominent role. He certainly has the skill set to run with the opportunity, though at this point it's uncertain how long Krejci will be out.
News:Tyler Seguin picked up a pair of assists in Saturday's win over the Lightning. Seguin had five shots and four PIMs in the game.
Analysis: He's off to a nice start, with three helpers in the B's first two games. A key to that is that he's skating a regular shift out of the gate, and that's not likely to change, as he's being counted on to take his offensive game to the next level in his second season.
News:Tyler Seguin has been skating on the Bruins' third line along with Chris Kelly and either Benoit Pouliot or Jordan Caron, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Coming off a 22-point effort in 74 games last season, the 19-year-old seems poised to take the next step in terms of production. Doubling the numbers he posted as a rookie seems well within reach, and the upside is there for much more. Tyler Seguin's ceiling remains sky high, so it's just a question of when, not if, he gets additional responsibilities and opportunities.
News:Tyler Seguin grabbed a power-play goal in Monday's preseason win over Montreal.
Analysis: After making his mark with a variety of roles during Boston's Stanley Cup triumph, the Bruins are ready to see a full season from last year's second overall pick. He possesses a rare skill set for a player his age and tremendous athletic ability. That said, expectations are still best left tempered for the dynamic pivot who's a very attractive option in keeper leagues.
News: Seguin, who was a healthy scratch for Monday's Game 3 against Vancouver, will be called upon for the duration of the Stanley Cup Final in the wake of Nathan Horton's injury.
Analysis: Horton has been a force in the playoffs, so he'll be tough to replace, but against the Lightning in the last round of the playoffs, Seguin demonstrated that he can provide the Bruins with a lift, given his speed and developing-but-at-times-dynamic skill set.
News: Seguin is on the bench for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals, Matthew Sekeres of The Globe and Mail reports.
Analysis: Seguin took part in the pre-game warmups per the Boston Globe, but now veteran Shawn Thornton will draw into the lineup instead.
News: Based on pre-game warmups, Seguin's name is included in Boston's lineup for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals Monday, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: There was some initial speculation that Seguin would be a healthy scratch, but it now appears that he will be active on the third line with Michael Ryder and Chris Kelly as his linemates. The highly-touted Seguin is still searching for his first point in the series, and has not cracked the box score since his four-point output against the Lightning in the conference finals on May 17.
News: Seguin could see the bench Monday for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals against Vancouver, as suggested by the Boston Herald.
Analysis: If the speculation holds true and Seguin indeed watches Game 3 from the press box, the Bruins may rely on Shawn Thornton to provide some added toughness to the group of Boston skaters. As for Seguin, he dropped jaws by turning in a four-point performance against the Lightning in the conference finals May 17, but the rookie has been held pointless in seven straight games since that remarkable performance.
News: Coach Claude Julien confirmed that Seguin will be in the Bruins' lineup Thursday against the Lightning, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Obviously. In any case, the subtext here is that Bruins could welcome Patrice Bergeron back to the lineup Thursday, but there is no way that Seguin will be a healthy scratch after his Tuesday heroics. Shawn Thornton is the logical candidate to head for the press box if Bergeron returns to action Thursday.
News: Seguin, who exploded for four points in the second period of Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Lightning, saw some power-play time in the game.
Analysis: Seguin, who entered the NHL as a highly-touted No. 2 pick overall, scored just one point in his last 23 regular season games, but he has been on fire (six points in two games) since re-entering the lineup as a result of Patrice Bergeron's concussion. The rookie's electric speed and laser shot were on display Tuesday and while we obviously don't expect him to keep up the pace, he now goes from a reluctantly-deployed weapon to a player the Lightning need to game-plan around. In any case, while Seguin scored just 22 points in 74 regular season games, his recent offensive explosion upwardly jolts his value in re-draft leagues.
News: Seguin had two goals and two assists in Tuesday's 6-5, Game 2 win over the Lightning.
Analysis: Seguin now has six points in his first two career playoff games. It makes you wonder why he was a healthy scratch for the first two rounds. Even if Patrice Bergeron (concussion) is ready to suit up for Game 3, there is no way that it will be at the expense of Seguin.
News: Seguin figured in both Boston tallies Saturday night, scoring in the first period and assisting on a goal in the game's waning moments as Boston lost to Tampa Bay, 5-2.
Analysis: After sitting out the team's first two playoff series, he's off to a fine start in the postseason. But his dismal end to the regular season -- one point in 19 games over the last six weeks of the campaign -- tells us he's not a smart gamble for playoff productivity.
News: Seguin skated on the right right wing at Monday's practice on the Bruins' third line, centered by Rich Peverley and flanked by Michael Ryder, the Boston Herald reports.
Analysis: Seguin and Peverley bring speed to the line, while Ryder is armed with a heavy shot. It's a combo that could thrive, especially if Seguin's time in the press box gave him the sort of perspective he needs in order to pace himself/utilize his energy more efficiently on the ice.
News: With Patrice Bergeron dealing with a concussion, Seguin is expected to rejoin the Bruins' lineup once the Eastern Conference finals begin, the Boston Herald reports.
Analysis: How long Bergeron will be out is unclear, but given his concussion history, don't expect the Bruins to rush him back. While Bergeron's outstanding two-way play will be missed greatly, the speedy Seguin will bring fresh legs to the B's front line and when he's on, the rookie -- who has been a healthy scratch in the postseason -- can be an electric presence on offense.
News: Seguin will be a healthy scratch Thursday against the Canadiens, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Seguin will be one injury away from re-entering the B's lineup, so if the team makes an extended playoff run, he may have a chance to get back in the lineup and provide a spark with his electric speed and shot.
News: Seguin will most likely start the playoffs as a healthy scratch, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: That said, he'll be one injury away from re-entering the lineup, so we probably haven't seen the last of the B's prized rookie this season, especially if Boston makes an extended playoff run.
News: The playing status of Seguin, who was a healthy scratch Wednesday, is uncertain heading into the playoffs, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Seguin, who has 11 goals and 11 assists in 72 games as a rookie, has blazing speed and a dangerous shot, but the rigors of the NHL seem to have caught up with him, as his play has tailed off of late. Chances are, he'll be a candidate to be a healthy scratch in the early going of the postseason, but of course Seguin would be just one injury up front away from the B's not having to choose between sending him or Michael Ryder to the press box. Either way, while Seguin's keeper league value remains high, in playoff pools he comes with some risk.
News: Seguin was not on the ice for warmups Wednesday, the Bruins' official site reports.
Analysis: He's the odd man out with Shawn Thornton back in the mix for the B's on Wednesday. Heading into the playoffs, Seguin's inexperience could land him in the press box (Michael Ryder is a scratch candidate as well) as long as the B's are healthy enough to carry a spare forward.
News: Seguin suited up for the Bruins in Tuesday's shootout win over Columbus, seeing 9:57 worth of ice time on 11 shifts.
Analysis: Seguin, who notched the shootout's lone goal, returned to the lineup Tuesday at the expense of veteran Michael Ryder. Which forward will be the B's healthy scratch Thursday against Nashville is uncertain, with Seguin, Ryder and Daniel Paille all possibilities.
News: Seguin was a healthy scratch for the second straight game Friday against the Islanders, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Seguin has no points in his last six games, but with the B's on a four-game downturn at the moment, perhaps the rookie will get the call Tuesday against Columbus.
News: Seguin was one of the last two Bruins off the ice Thursday morning, an indication that he will be a healthy scratch for the team's evening tilt against the Lightning, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Seguin, who has been held without a point the last four games, has a bright future, but until his consistency catches up with his abundant skills, he'll be a candidate to watch things from the press box when the B's are well-manned up front.
News: In the wake up the Bruins' recent additions up front, coach Claude Julien said that Seguin will "move around a little bit," the Bruins' official site reports.
Analysis: With Rich Peverley slated to join the B's forward mix, someone will have to sit, but Seguin, who has four points over his last four games, is making the decision pretty tough for Julien with his recent surge. Julien noted that the current plan is to have Seguin play various roles on various lines, which suggests that the team will find ways to keep their prized rookie in the mix.
News: Seguin had perhaps his best game of the year Thursday against the Islanders, scoring a goal and adding a primary assist while winning seven of 10 faceoffs.
Analysis: Seguin hadn't picked up a multi-point game since Jan. 11 against Ottawa, but he has scored a goal in two out of three games since being scratched twice. Watch him to see if he can keep it up.
News: Seguin was credited with the first goal of the game in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Red Wings.
Analysis: After being a healthy scratch for two straight games, Sunday's first period goal has to be a confidence builder for the B's talented youngster, who has now lit the lamp nine times in 52 games.
News: Seguin will rejoin the Bruins' lineup Sunday, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Seguin, a healthy scratch the last two games, will return to the B's lineup Sunday at the expense of Zach Hamill.
News: Seguin was a healthy scratch Friday (against Detroit) for the second straight game, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Seguin's skills and long-term upside are undeniable, but with the Bruins' forward ranks deep and talented, the report speculates that it might take injuries or a trade for the talented rookie to get back into the lineup.
News: Seguin will be a healthy scratch Wednesday against the Canadiens, the Bruins' official site reports.
Analysis: It's not a long-term move, but perhaps the view from the press box will give Seguin (who has 17 points in 51 games) some perspective on what he needs to do in order to get back on track. With Seguin out of the mix Wednesday, Zach Hamill will center the Bruins' third line, while Jordan Caron will skate on the team's fourth line.
News: Seguin had a goal and assist Saturday against the Sabres for the first multi-point game of his career.
Analysis: He's got an unbelievable future but right now, his value is limited. Keeper leaguers should consider him one of the top-five rookies in the NHL and should drafted/kept as such.
News: Seguin will play Thursday against Montreal, the Bruins' official site reports.
Analysis: The speedy rookie is back in the lineup after being a healthy scratch Wednesday and will hopefully help spark an attack that only mustered two goals against Buffalo Wednesday.
News: Seguin, who was a healthy scratch Wednesday, will be a game-time decision for Thursday's game against Montreal, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: The Bruins, who were held to two goals by the Sabres on Wednesday, could certainly use a little spark on offense Thursday, so don't bet against Seguin returning to the ice against the Canadiens.
News: Seguin was scratched from the Bruins' lineup Wednesday, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: As a result, Daniel Paille is in uniform, while Seguin, who we'll classify as a healthy scratch, gets the night off. There's no way that the B's will keep their prized rookie in the press box for long, but it looks like tough choices loom for coach Claude Julien, as long as the B's current group of forwards stay healthy.
News: Seguin, who missed his first NHL game Saturday due to flu-like symptoms, will likely return to the Bruins' lineup against Buffalo on Wednesday, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: As a result, Daniel Paille is expected to be a healthy scratch for the Bruins up front Wednesday night.
News: Seguin will not play Saturday against the Flyers due to flu-like symptoms, the Bruins' official site reports.
Analysis: Seguin's illness will open the door for Daniel Paille to re-enter the B's lineup, but we'd be surprised if this was more than a one-game absence for the team's prized rookie.
News: Seguin picked up his fifth goal of the season in Wednesday's win over the Flyers.
Analysis: There's talk that once B's playmaker Marc Savard returns to action -- likely in the next game or two -- he will most likely be paired with Seguin. Savard's passing and Seguin's speed/shot could form a nice combo, so there's a decent chance the rookie's production is about to be in line for a spike.
News: Against the Lightning on Monday, Seguin skated on the wing for the second straight game, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Seguin, who has four goals and eight points through 19 games thus far, has already displayed flashes of his offensive upside, in particular with his explosive speed and dangerous shot. He's a diamond already in keeper formats and while his one-year league owners may not see him put up consistent production, adding wing eligibility would boost the talented rookie's fantasy resume.
News: Seguin scored his fourth goal of the season Wednesday against the Rangers.
Analysis: Seguin, who had gone seven games without a goal, stole the puck from New York's Matt Gilroy in the second period, then proceeded to streak up the ice and fire a nifty wrister past Henrik Lundqvist. It only counts for one point, but the tally was a reminder of just how explosive and electric the youngster can be. Once David Krejci returns, and that could be soon, the Bruins are considering keeping Blake Wheeler at center and moving Seguin to wing, where he might have more space to work in and in turn, more chances to deploy his his blistering speed and shot.
Move to Wing Likely Later in the Season for Bruins' Seguin
News: Seguin, who scored his third goal of season in Saturday's win over Ottawa, will most likely switch to right wing at some point this season, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Seguin, who now has five points in his first eight NHL games, all at center, is already gold in keeper leagues, but if he ends up getting RW eligibility down the road, his value in one-year formats would get a boost as well, as point-scoring centers are usually easier to find than dynamic young right wingers.
News: Seguin scored a goal in Thursday's 2-0 win over the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: It was confirmed Thursday that Seguin, who now has two goals and two assists in seven NHL games, will stay with the Bruins for the rest of the season, no surprise given that he's more than held his own against the faster, bigger, stronger players he faces as a pro. Seguin, whose speed led to a breakaway that he didn't cash in on Thursday, continues to flash potential and while his game isn't quite at the stage where he's going to dominate contests on a regular basis, watching him and the skills he possesses revealed gives one the feeling that he has that sort of upside down the road.
News: Seguin will stay with the Bruins for the remainder of the season, as reported on the Official Bruins Twitter Page .
Analysis: The B's had the option of sending Seguin back to his junior club for the rest of the season, but evidently have elected not to do so. All Seguin owners should be ecstatic about this news, but probably more so the poolies that have him in keeper leagues that have the option of holding over the future star once he gets fully adjusted to life in the NHL.
News: Seguin scored his first NHL goal in Sunday's 3-0 win over the Coyotes.
Analysis: Seguin, who has been centering the Bruins' third line, figures to score many more goals before his budding career is over, but we expect his offensive production to come sporadically this season, despite his obvious skills and upside.
News: Seguin scored twice in Boston's preseason win over the Belfast Giants in Germany Saturday.
Analysis: Seguin will start with the big team when they open the season against the Coyotes in Prague next weekend. His future may be Joe Sakic-ish but his present won't be worthy of ownership, at least in single-year leagues.
News: Seguin is on track to stick with the Bruins and play center to start the season, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Marc Savard's post-concussion issues have opened the door for Seguin to center the Bruins' third line. While we expect to see flashes of his dynamic skills out of the gate, it may be a while before Seguin is a consistent scorer at the NHL level. In keeper leagues however, he is gold.
News: Seguin scored his first goal of the preseason in the second period of Saturday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Panthers.
Analysis: Seguin has been playing wing on a line with Patrice Bergeron and Mark Recchi, but he could end up back at center with Marc Savard's status uncertain. Either way, a return to his junior team seems unlikely.
News: Seguin assisted on Johnny Boychuk's first period power-play goal in Wednesday's 4-2 exhibition win over Montreal.
Analysis: "You can see there's a lot of potential and a lot of skill," coach Claude Julien said of Seguin, who saw action at both center and left wing Wednesday. "What he's got to learn are the little things. Sometimes he was caught going up the ice in the middle against two or three guys. He's going to notice he can't stickhandle through three guys in this league. It's a real good learning process for him. Started him off at center, and I thought he did a real decent job. I thought it was a good game for him." Seguin will be one to watch in the coming weeks, and years for that matter. His upside is immense, but as Julien pointed out, there's still plenty of room for growth in the youngster's game.
News: Seguin's chances of sticking with the Bruins at center ice increased Friday when the team announced that Marc Savard has had a setback and won't be ready for the start of camp.
Analysis: Savard is suffering from post-concussion syndrome again (he initially sustained a horrible concussion March 7 but returned to action in the second round of the playoffs). Segin was set to shift to wing in camp but the door is now open for him to strut his immense talent at his natural position. Watch camp carefully -- his fantasy value could take a big jump.
News: With Marc Savard, Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci currently above him on the Bruins' center depth chart, Seguin is likely to find himself skating on the wing once training camp gets going, the Boston Globe reports.
Analysis: Seguin's electric ability continues to draw Steven Stamkos comparisons and it while it's probably unfair to expect him to hit the heights in his rookie season, assuming he makes the team, there figures to be plenty of flashes of his potential. Seguin is definitely someone to watch in one-year formats as the season progresses, and in keeper leagues he's solid gold.
News: The Boston Bruins have signed forward Tyler Seguin, the second player taken in this year's NHL Draft. Financial terms of the three-year, entry-level announced on Tuesday deal were not released, but it was reportedly in the neighborhood of contract No. 1 overall draft pick Taylor Hall signed with the Edmonton Oilers that will bring him $900,000 a year with bonuses that could bring it to a total of $3.75 million. Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli noted that the negotiations were relatively uncomplicated because of the slotting for rookie contracts. After watching Seguin go through the development camp, the team decided it was ready to commit. "We felt it was time to sign Tyler," Chiarelli said.
Analysis: Seguin, 18, and Hall tied for the Ontario Hockey League scoring title with 106 points. Seguin was honored as the outstanding player in the OHL last season after scoring 48 goals with 58 assists in 63 games. In two seasons with the Plymouth Whalers, he had 69 goals and 104 assists in 124 regular-season games and 10 goals and 16 assists in 20 postseason games. Chiarelli said that Seguin, who played center in juniors, fits in best at wing right now on the Bruins. Boston already has four centers in Marc Savard, David Krejci, Patrice Bergeron and newly acquired Gregory Campbell. "But you never know," Chiarelli said. "I've had discussions with [coach Claude Julien] about mixing and matching." Seguin is really going to have to impress in training camp to land a roster spot. Keep tabs on his progress, but we can envision Seguin being more of a late-round Fantasy selection, if he makes the roster out of training camp.
